My husband and I are arriving into JFK from London Heathrow with our 2 dogs (in plastic airline crates) and 4 large suitcases plus hand luggage. We don't want to get separated - is there a way we can all get to the car rental area? Can dogs get on the train (in or out of crates)? Or is it possible to be collected by a rental company or BIG taxi outside terminal building?

I wonder if someone can help me?
I am planning to visit America (from the UK) in the Summer with my son, to celebrate his 18th birthday in June. We are flying into JFK, visiting a relative near Liberty in The Catskills, then over to Boston, and back via Cape Cod/ New England. Long Island. At this (early) stage, we are planning to arrive on Friday 22nd June, and would return the car mid/late pm on the 2nd July.
I would prefer something a little "different" ie a convertible of some description, maybe Audi A4 size, or similar... but not a Mini.
I cant seem to get much joy on various web site so I was just wondering if a) this is possible and b) if so, some idea as to the likely cost. Clearly if it is ridiculously expensive, I will just have a "standard" car ie Focus or similar!
Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.

It will probably not be a problem but make sure to ask at JFK airport to be double sure.

I can only write here I dont give away personal information on this website. Make sure you get U.S tourist visa. All you have to do once you arrive here is to go through Immigration and Customs with your luggage.

Need to rent a car in jfk & drop off in Nanuet/ Rockland Co. Does anyone know which company has a location there for drop off?

I am a party of two driving a Rental car to JFK from Ohio to take a Delta international flight. I would like a few pieces of advice about rental car return at JFK and dropping off luggage.

How easy is to find the rental car return facility?

Is it easier to drop of at Delta first with luggage and then go return car or should i do it the opposite?

Please note I have two heavy pieces of luggage and a few carry ons.

Any and all advice is appreciated.

B2G

1. Follow signs for rental car return near Federal Circle
2. Drop off luggage first, then return car and take Airtrain from Federal Circle back to terminal

Hi!
I am travelling in on the 29th of April 2012. Does anyone know of any company/ies located at the JFK renting baby related equipment, excluding car rental companies, since they require renting a car as well. I do not want to travel to NY. Many thanks!

Hi there, I am American but some family members are from Germany. We found it cheaper to use the German Website and book through the German company I believe that is due to the insurance the way each perspective comany handles them. Therefore, due to the German ways of car insurance it comes out cheaper. Try National it is in federal circle along with many other car rentals. I hope this help and you have a pleasant trip :-)

Are there any car rental places INSIDE the airport?

B2G

No, all rental car counters are located at the Federal Circle. Take any AirTrain on track 1 from terminals to Federal Circle station.

My wife and I returned a car to Avis Thursday afternoon before flying back to Europe. Unfortunately, we lost our GPS device and we think that it might have been left on a seat within the hall, in front of the tellers desk.If you happened to find it, would you mind contacting us at the above mentioned e-mail address? Thank you for your attention.

Hi,I will be renting a car from Hertz JFK location. As I will not be arriving the airport by air I plan to take Airtran from Jamaica Station to Federal Circle. I wonder how far is Hertz rental location from the Airtran terminal? Is it outside or inside the terminal?

Thanks and appreciate your helps!

Best regards.

MSKT

Outside the terminal. Take any air train on track 1 to get there. It takes little more than 5 minutes.

goldenbear

Sorry, you mean I should take Airtran from Federal Circle on track 1 to get there after arriving from Jamaica Station? Thanks for clarification.

Regards

JFK_Specialist_...

MSKT is right. Once you arrive at Federal Circle or if you are at Jamaica Station take any train on track 1 to all terminals.

Which car rental has the best rate for people under 25? My husband and I are 24 years old, but we are not trying to pay extra money due to our being shy of 25 by 3 months.

JFK_Specialist_...

Avis would be your best choice.

Can you please confirm that there is FREE and CONTINUOUS shuttle service from all JFK terminals to the rental car parking lots?

Thanks,

B2G

AirTrain runs 24/7 and is free between terminals and Federal Circle where the rental cars are located. Take any train on track 1.

Ann Mendenhall (not verified)

Is it more expensive to rent a car at JFK and return to La Guardia?

B2G

The reply below from B2G. (with a period) is just a little off. Figure around $100 per day for drop off at LGA, around $75 per day return to JFK with the major rental car companies.

B2G.

It is very cheap to rent a car at JFK figure around 30$.

Hi!
I intend to rent a car at JFK soon. Is my European / German driver's license sufficient or is it mandatory to have an international license?
Thanks!

JFK_Specialist_...

You should have an international drivers permit with you in the U.S.

Michal Skala (not verified)

You should, but you do not really need to...
It was enough for me to get my local driving license (Slovak). The guy at the counter used a magic book to check whether it's valid unlimited time...
They recognize European driving licenses.

We are flying in via American to JFK and renting from National. My husband has a breathing condition and can't walk far, can I pick up the car and drive back to the airport close to baggage claim to pick him and the baggage up?

Thank you for your reply.

B2G

Absolutely. Take any AirTrain on track 1 from T8 to Federal Circle (about 5 minutes), all rental cars are located there.
